This series is designed for those who know biblical languages. It is written primarily for the pastor and Bible teacher, not for the scholar. That is, the aim is not to review and offer a critique of every possible interpretation that has ever been given to a passage, but to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting, with a view to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting. While the focus will not be on application, it is expected that the authors will offer suggestions as to the direction in which application can flow.
This is easily the best commentary on John since Carson. Klink is sensitive to canonical connections and theological interpretation. He engages with Augustine and Aquinas while at the same time building off Carson and Morris. Highly recommend.
This commentary is REALLY good. Carson is 7 out of 10 for me, Kostenberger, Morris and Ridderbos are all 8 out of 10 but this one (if everything is as good as what I have read up to now) I will rate as 9.5 out of 10. It is only Beasley-Murray that was referencing Aquinas in his commentary and it was only once, the rest of the commentators strangely ignore him, this one will interact with Aquinas often, same as with John Chrysostom and Augustine, he will reference people from all across the ages. His methodology is really good and I do appreciate his approach to John 7:53-8:11. RECOMMENDED!
